Investigating Cop Posed With Big Ben

3/12/2010 10:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The cop who first investigated Ben Roethlisberger for sexual assault posed for a photo with the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback roughly one hour before the alleged incident, this according to a new report.

Investigating Cop Posed With Big Ben

According to the Union-Recorder, Sgt. Jerry Blash -- an 8-year veteran of the Milledgeville Police Department -- took two pics with Big Ben ... one inside and one outside a local bar.

Soon after the pics were taken, Blash was approached by the alleged victim -- and was the cop who wrote the first police report.

Police Chief Woodrow Blue told reporters he was not troubled by the photos, saying they "did not and have not affected the investigation at all."

HMD, you seem to be trying to say that steeler fans are ignorant. Is that it? Many people got their pics taken with Ben that night, before the accusations.

His shirt looks like the Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vendetta.

Either way, you know that the cops behind closed doors are asking for pictures and autographs, this one just happened to be in the open!

How convenient! Nobody noticed this coincidence earlier? It looks like you are guilty and trying to hide. Do the right thing here and admit what really happened.
